much of that exchange was political, how much was personal, and how much was related to the defense policy? >> 92, 11, 13. a lot of it was personal. one could not watch those hearings without feeling there were a lot of personal grudges but, even vendettas, being settled. >> center cornyn of texas says he cannot support a nominee for defense secretary who thinks we should be tougher on israel and more lenient on iran. is that a fair characterization of chuck hagel? >> what was important about the hearing yesterday, the news -- which we ought to be discussing -- is not the content of what he has been saying. that has already been hashed out. not even his veracity, since he changed his mind on have a dozen issues overnight. and on his competence. the reason democrats were shocked by his performance was that he displayed an amazing clueless this on a variety of issues. the clip you should have shown, which would have highlighted, was an example of the hearings, the one in which he showed he did not even understand the idea of containment against iran, a major issue of our time. i will
hampshire, mccain even floated this possibility -- >> as far as secretary of defense is concerned, there's a lot of people that could do that. one of them i think is senator chuck hagel. >> but yesterday the air in the hearing room was thick. maybe it was bitterness. we don't know. mccain may feel about his old friend as mccain hammered hagel for the opposition to the 2007 troop surge in iraq. >> were you correct or incorrect, yes or no? >> my reference to the surge being -- >> are you going to anxious the question, senator hagel? the question is, were you right or wrong? that's a pretty straightforward question. >> well, i'm not going to give you a -- a yes-or-no answer on a lot of things. >> let the record show you refused to answer that question. >> by the way, incoming secretary of state john kerry who glided through his nomination hearing was also opposed to the iraq surge. republican senators who hadn't much criticized hagel before the hearing rushed to do so during and after it. florida's marco rubio said he would not support him. lindsey graham said it's not looking good. alabama
wind up the secretary of defense. that's the best explanation i can come up with. other than he just didn't sleep well the night before and wasn't good. >> well, still, ruth, and all the rest of you, how does this leave him? assume that he gets confirmed, he has to be a tough -- a tough guy at the pentagon. he is going to be tough with congress. he has to deal with the potential of the sequester, fighting for the budget that he does get, dealing with all of the problems that come at you when you are in charge of the pentagon and the generals and the other members of the joint chiefs are going to feel they can run over him. >> we'll see about that. i assume that every general with any number of stars was watching intently yesterday, and might have had that thought in mind. you said another important word, which is sequester. it's going to be a huge mess over there trying to, first, anticipate this, and then deal with whatever the new reality is. i do think that it was ugly yesterday. it was ugly on both sides. the white house wasn't so much from what i heard defending his performance
they are talking about, and there are photographs that had a whole other side of jodi arias. arias' defense is self defense. that's what she said. she said this was a tough relationship, that he was a sex maniac that threatened her with bodily harm, but a bullet casing and camera may tell a different story in the courtroom. and then there are the lies, one after the other that this woman told police. our sister network, hln has more. >> reporter: jodi arias could join three other women sitting on arizona's death row if found guilty as charged. the state carries out all post 1992 convictions byl lethal injection, and its courts gave the green light for witnesses to observe the entire execution process including insertion of the iv. the state is said to have only enough supply of the drug to carry out one more execution before it is forced to find another method. stokley was put to death last month, and they delivered the iv by cutting into his groin area. that's standard when they find problems getting an iv into the arm. the only woman to be executed in the state's history, ava dugan was put to dea

't tell us much. who is that? is that the secretary of defense? is it the cia director? is it the national security advisor? is it the president of the united states? the vice president? we don't know. so this topic really dominated the briefing yesterday. jay carney insisted on every level, we are doing the right thing. >> we have acknowledged to the united states that sometimes we use remotely piloted aircraft to conduct targeted al-qaeda terrorists in order to present attacks on the united states and save american lives. we couple conduct those strikes because they are necessary to mitigate ongoing threats t and save american lives. these strikes are legal. they are ethical and they are wise. >> legal, ethical and wise and jay carney says here is the legal authority we are talking about. >> also takes his responsibility in conducting the war against al-qaeda as authorized by congress in a way that is fully consistent with our constitution and all of the applicable laws. >> bill: of course, he is talking about that blanket authorization f
pain. to hear more of phyllis's story, visit lyrica.com. >>> a new secretary of defense or a new -- it's friday, february 1st, and this is "now." >>> joining me today political -- well, the first word i'm tripping up on the first word. politico senior white house reporter glenn thrush. national news editor for the morning times sam sifton, kiran simone and the always buzzy ben smith. for eight hours yesterday senate republicans directed their sharpest lines of inquiry towards defense secretary nominee chuck hagel. it's too bad most of it had nothing to do with the against defense department or what chuck hagel's record really says about what he might do with the defense department or really what chuck hagel's record actually is. freshman senator and deputy gum shoe ted cruz looked for needles in a haystack, parsing fragments of hagel's quotes circa 2006. >> in a speech on the floor of the senate you referred to israel's military campaign against the terrorist group hezbollah as a "sickening slaughter." now, i would suggest the characterizations. do you think it's right that israel was
and secretary of defense to get along really well. there is some natural tension there. and she engaged and she and panetta got along fabulous. >> warner: speak of secretary of defense, chuck hagel who david, president wants to be, the secretary of defense, hearing yesterday confirmation hearing before the senate, pretty rough going. what did you take away from that. >> i thought it was terrible. i thought he did a very poor job. we interviewed him, mark and i said nice things about him. i internal enjoyed the interviews hi with him but he really did a bad job. he projected weakness which is not something you want in a secretary of defense. conot even respond to pressure from senators with any divorce or vigor. he project aid guy who hadn't prepared. some of these questions were obvious about the surge, about some of the things he said on al jazeera. you have to have an answer. it's like somebody without walks into a big home of their life without having done their homework. so i still think he will be confirmed. on more or less party-line votes but if it was up to sort of a looking for a boost
blunt laid out this morning. >> does it boil down to money though? it's about the defense cuts coming. >> i just think it was kind of a bad day for the impression of politics and political theater for any american people who are watching that. there's already enough of a view that the senate -- and the house even more so, are kind of these dysfunctional partisan bodies with all this bickering. and that's kind of what you saw yesterday. probably for most people, that was the most chuck hagel they have seen in a long time and i can't imagine they were very impressed by it. look, on the budgetary side, i actually think chuck hagel can really help in bringing down the defense budget, but doing so in ways that are smart, unlike the sequester, which are across the board spending cuts, absolutely make no sense. >> before we let you go as the former spokesperson for outgoing secretary ray la hood, what are you hearing in your circles about who might take his place? >> you know, every name i've heard offered up i think is wrong. i think most of these names have been, you know, someone has cons
. if he is to become the secretary of defense. chief congressional correspondent mike emanuel tells us hagel's confirmation hearing left doubters with plenty of questions. >> a day after bruising confirmation hearing, the former colleagues say the performance did not help his cause and did not win them over. >> i don't intend to vote for him in the committee or on the senate floor. there were so many inconsistencies yesterday, plained by well, i'd have to look at the whole context of what i said at the time. >> that brings the number of republican nos to 12 including richard burke, dan coates, john cornyn, cruz, inhof, kirk, rubio, pat roberts, viter and wicker. he incorrected stated that president obama's policy on the iran nuclear program. >> i just been handed a note that i, i misspoke and said i supported the president's position on containment. if i said that, meant to say that i obviously, his position on containment we don't have a position on containment. >> we do have a position on containment that we do not favor containment. >> hagel appeared unfamiliar with the massive cut
out in mclean at c.i.a. headquarters or at the defense department who is sitting there just like playing video games. this is real time. and they're sending the drones over villages in pakistan. they make the decision and boom, they blow up a house or blow up a warehouse or whatever and kill a dozen people and then they just hop in their car and drive home and have dinner with their kids. there's no risk at all to any american life. is this the warfare of the future? is this something we ought to be doing? serious question i think for us americans. the idea that we can kill americans anywhere on the planet with no plans to attack the united states, what if george bush had done this? that's my question. what if george bush and dick cheney had done this. what would we be saying? 1-866-55-press. you know what? we would be raising hell and i think we ought to raise hell now with the obama administration doing it and demand some answers. what is the policy relating to drones? >> announcer: this is the "bill press show." have the data and i want them to have the passion. show, to be
to little to reveal anything substantive about chuck hagel, defense secretary, the pink panther style sleuthing did reveal much about their feelings regarding barack obama, president. of the many, many actually relevant items left largely off the table? not one question about drones, despite the fact the u.s. has carried out 362 drone strikes since 2004. troop suicides, of which there were as many as 349 last year alone were mentioned twice. rapes inside the military estimated at 19,000 per year got five passing mentions. while israel was brought up 166 times yesterday, afghanistan, the longest running war in american history, and one that has cost almost 2,000 american lives was brought up 20 times. glen thrush, i ask you, the hearings yesterday, were they ever even meant to be hearings, or was it a trial for the obama administration? >> i was just struck by the great positive energy that chuck hagel was giving off at these hearings. didn't he look like he had just been abduct and pushed out of a moving vehicle? >> he was facing eight hours of questioning that as we showed at the beg
was because of hurricane sandy. but it was also because of big cuts in defense spending. >>> we also learned yesterday that members of the president's job council are out of a job. the council had a two-year charter that will not be renewed. this morning, speaker john boehner said this is the wrong time for president obama to scrap his jobs council and delay his budget. month after month, we see the same thing, high unemployment and even more debt. the white house knew this criticism was coming. >> when we hear some of the somewhat ridiculous criticisms about this, they come from people on capitol hill who have consistently opposed every growth initiative and job creation initiative the president has put forward. >> i want to bring in "washington post" political reporter karen tumelty and michael crowley. good morning. >> nice to be here. >> he asked the chairman of the white house council on economic advisers if washington is the biggest problem, including the sequester. here's what he said. >> this is something that the president has provided a plan. the sequester is bad policy. it's somet

house expressing surprise, but not sounding the alarm after secretary of defense nominee chuck hagel's rocky ride before the senate armed services committee. >> well, i said it, and i don't remember the context or when i said it. if i had an opportunity to edit that, like many things i've said, i would like to go back and change the words and the meeting. and i think in a larger context, i've said many, many things over many years. >> so the reviews, they are in. and take a look at some of the headlines today. the "new york times" saying hagel has rough outing before ex colleagues. the hill, hagel delivers shaky performance. "the national journal" is chuck hagel failing. >> i really regretted the lack of civility and respect for a man who has fought for the nation, been decorated for combat heroism. and who was obviously a thoughtful and insightful person when it comes to many of these issues. >> i've thought about this a lot since yesterday. i want to give the president the benefit of the doubt in who he can bring to his cabinet with him and who can join him in the cabinet. but in t
the field. >> so maybe the best defense against this, forgive the pun, but is other players like pressuring players like culliver to maybe change their minds. >> absolutely. brendan ayanbadejo has been a tremendous advocate as chris clucl kluitt of the minnesota vikings. another player of the vikings came out in opposing gay marriage. if you have an issue and engage in it civilly that's one thing but if you defame a member of the group there has to be zero tolerance. the nfl should be embarrassed, horribly embarrassed by this. if it were jews or blacks or any other group, he would be fired from the team. that's what they need to do in terms of taking a strong stance. >> michael angelo, sirius xm radio radio and "huffington post" contributor thank you for joining us. >> thank you, carol. >>> baltimore fans are crazy! >>. ♪ oh, oh, oh, oh >> we're in drinking town with a football problem. ♪ oh, oh, uh-oh >> it's raven-sanity, a 4/7 condition.  >>> i know san francisco fans are crazy for the 49ers but there's something different about the fans in baltimore. when i say they love their r
. yesterday chuck hagel had a rough first day. he would like to be our next secretary of defense. his appearance was rambling. he was stapl pherg. "the new york daily news" this morning writes whatever president obama sees in chuck hagel, it was largely invisible as he faced his former colleagues. if you missed the testimony, we had it largely here on the channel yesterday. here he is tangling with john mccain over the troop surge in iraq which mr. hagel opposed. >> if you would like me to explain why -- >> i actually would like an answer. yes or no? >> i'm not going to give you a yes or no. i think it's far more complicated that, as i've said. my answer is i'll defer that judgment to history. >> i think history has already made a judgment about the surge, sir, and you're on the wrong side of it. >> do i think it is right that israel was committing a, quote, sickening slaughter as you said on the floor of the senate? >> i would like to read all of it, what i said. first, i said many, many times, senator, every nation has a right to defend itself. >> do you think a sickening slaughter
in the basement of a neighboring building. >>> a grueling day for chuck hagel. the choice for secretary of defense spent much of the day on the defensive with senators grilling hagel on his statements on israel and iran. this was not pretty. was it enough to secure a cabinet position? here is cnn's chris lawrence. >> they attacked chuck hagel from all sides. >> why do you think the iranian foreign ministry so strongly supports your nomination for secretary of defense? >> give me an example where we've been intim dated by the israeli jewish lobby to do something dumb? >> at time he stumbled through his answers and had to repeatedly correct himself. >> i have just been handed a note that i misspoke. >> reporter: leading one senator to say -- >> i want to clarify the clarify. >> reporter: in the muddle, some things became clear. hagel supports a negotiated reductions in america's nuclear weapons. he'll push for spouses of gay and lesbian troops to receive benefits and he believes the u.s. should talk with iran about its nuclear program. >> that's not negotiation. engagement is not appeasement. >> rep

, the drones, things people are talking about today. the next secretary of defense is not going to have to deal with iraq. iraq is a fait accompli, but john mccain is obsessed with the past and with the glory of war idea that is from the 20th century. he needs to move on. >> here is lindsey graham badgering defense nominee hagel on whether the iranian revolutionary national guard should be designated a terrorist organization. i think this is aimed directly at south carolina's right wing. let's listen. >> if there was a vote on the floor of the senate this afternoon to label the iranian revolutionary guard, the people who have killed our soldiers in iraq, some of the most vicious people to the people of iran themselves, if there were a vote tomorrow or this afternoon or after lunch, would you still vote no? >> well, i would want to know from the president what they were doing, but, again -- >> i mean, you read the paper, you watch tv. you got any doubt what they're doing? if you had a chance tomorrow, today, after lunch to vote to say that the iranian revolutionary guard was a terrorist organiza
